Community Support in the blogosphere!

There are many ways to help the Food Bank turn its mission into a reality - from the assorted volunteer opportunities we have, to running or participating in a food and fund drive, gathering excess office supplies to donate, joining the Monthly Harvest Club... the list goes on. But a new trend is one we are really excited about. Blogging is a way to share thoughts and ideas not only with your immediate community, but also with the world!

By writing about why you support Second Harvest Food Bank on your blog, you can reach many, many more people than we ever could on our own. One person really CAN make a difference!

Please read Rokin' Robot Lobster's post here. Along with a cool video about not stopping with your vote (her boss is in it!) she talks about why she donates monthly to Second Harvest to support her local community.

Little Field of Greens also is spreading the word about the Food Bank on her blog, and although she's stumping for us during our busiest (and most crucial) time of the year, she remembered our most important adage - "People need to eat year 'round!"

And an oldie but goodie, Rainmaker Properties posted a great blog about us last August.

So thank you to the bloggers - calls for assistance are up 55% from last year, most of those are people seeking help for the first time. We truly value and appreciate your support. May your words inspire many!
